Hilda Rumpole tells the story, in a long letter to her friend Dodo MacIntosh, the tale that Rumpole will never tell; the time that Hilda turned detective and cleared Rumpole's client of what appears to be a cast iron case of murder...... Sadly, not read by Prunella Scales.

He bets all his guests and staff that they cannot break into his study undetected, the windows being alarmed and the door being possibly guarded by a...

A week later, they break out into a strange rash, but still the doctors are not concerned - until people start to die. Scientists discover that the victims are suffering from a disease of pigs, which has mutated and then passed from pigs to humans. Worse, the bacterium (note - not a virus) responsible...

A none too serious crime drama. When a restaurant critic is found dead in the lavatory of the restaurant she is reviewing, it's useful that the police are already on hand, eating in the restaurant. But why, if the dead woman was poisoned, why did she have a wooden stake in her back?
